I think Skype will be the killer application for radio journalists in 2005. We need an easier interface to allow freelancers to record interviews with the people they are talking to. Many do not realise that with the Skypeout option you can record round-table discussions, mixing and matching those on broadband and those on the regular phone. Brilliant.
If you're using this system, let us know here on Broadcast Gadgets what you're using in the way of microphones, laptop, etc.
In the meantime, Happy New Year, from just outside Amsterdam
